L-Bracket without Handgrip

Recommended Posts

I used to have the Fuji quick release plate (or, as they called it "Small Handgrip" for the X-T1) because I did not require an additional grip. In my opinion, it wasn't needed and it looked goofy. However, to my dismay, I found out that Fuji discontinued this plate and is now only producing the hand grip plate for the X-T2. So I began researching my options from other manufacturers. I ordered a thirty dollar one from Ebay, but it was clunky and heavy. It also didn't really fit properly. But then I found the perfect one for my needs, also on Ebay. It's the PEIPRO L-bracket. I took off the small side bracket and just use the bottom. The plate is super-light and although it's so light has a smooth, closed bottom (only one opening for the battery compartment). I really don't know how they were able to make it so light. 

 

So just in case you want a good looking, light arca-swiss compatible quick release plate that can stay permanently installed on your X-T2, you can't go wrong with this one. I highly recommend it.

As far as I can tell, the difference of the barebones baseplate is only 10 grams (the closed one being the lighter one). But it also fits better and has a lower profile. In my eyes, it's absolutely perfect.

Thanks for sharing. I'm always on the lookout for a good L-bracket. I have the Fittest brand--perhaps what you first tried--and it works, but doesn't fit well. I think I read somewhere that the Fittest is 128 grams and the PEIPRO is 71 grams. I wouldn't mind a slimmer, lighter bracket

      I've just traded-in my X-T2 for an X-H1 since I like it ergonomics and IBIS. Normally I use CaptureOne for raw processing and occasionally ON1 Photo Raw. Their 2020 edition is a big improvement for Fuji shooters.
      However, I wanted to revisit a raw file from my X-T2 and run it again through the in-camera raw converter using X Raw Studio. Much to my surprise, the software didn't accept my X-H1 nor my X-Pro2 to process the X-T2 raw file. It needs to connect to an X-T2 (which I don't own anymore)!! In the user manual Fujifilm states: "Please note, the RAW conversion is only compatible with a RAW file taken by the same camera model as the camera connected to the computer. For example, if the connected camera is a FUJIFILM X-T2, the RAW file must be taken by a FUJIFILM X-T2." I was stunned...
      Is this me doing something wrong or just incredibly bad design by Fujifilm? I fully understand that an older camera can't process newer X-Trans CMOS4/X-Processor4  files. But all of my current camera's are X-Trans CMOS3 and X-Processor Pro just like the X-T2 with which I made the photos. I would expect compatibility to be depending on the sensor/processor combination (and pref some backwards compatibility as well for my X-Pro1 files), but not on the actual precise camera type?! This makes X Raw Studio useless when you update your camera. Clearly not a great business model...

      I did some shooting in a different time zone and forgot to set the camera to the proper local time. So of course the pictures are all recorded with an incorrect time of day. Is there any way to fix this in-camera, or do I have to find an exif editor and make the changes elsewhere? Thanks!

      Hey guys,
      I had luck and got a 16-80mm just right before my holiday in Iceland. Now I'm back and would like to share some photos I took with it:

      Hello,
      I have been shooting various sport events since 2003 until 2014 on Canon. Then quit action photography and switched to Fuji for more calm photography. Switching was one of the best decisions I've made! That quality of color and sharpness - it still surprises and makes me happy every day! 
      I've been asked to shoot some motorcycle races this season, so googling daily what are the best techniques for Fuji X-T2 because they dramatically differ from Canon. I would like to get some suggestions from You. So here are a couple of questions:
      1. Motorcycle straight on at high speed -  which AF Mode  - Single point, Zone or Wide/Tracking is more reliable?  What size of Single point or Zone? Best custom setting for it?
      2. Panning - same or different AF Mode is best? Best custom setting?
      If it's important what gear I plan to use - it is X-T2 + Battery Grip, 55-200mm, 90mm f/2, 35mm f/2, Samyang 12mm f/2 and 8mm Fisheye.
      Thank You all in advance!
       
      Audrius

      I have a Godox XProF transmitter but no Godox lights yet. When I connect my XProF to my X-T2 (both on latest software releases) the X-T2 recognises a "flashgun" has been connected but the flash menu refuses to switch into Manual. I can select M using the rear dial but it immediately switches itself back into TTL.
      Is this correct? Will it only work in TTL mode as I would like to have full manual control of my lights?
      Do you think I am doing something wrong?
      BTW this happens when there is no receiver active and also when I have a Godox X1RC receiver switched on, which disappointingly will only change the zoom function on my Pixel 800C (Canon compatible) flashgun, not the power levels or mode. Also the Pixel is not actually working in TTL despite the camera saying so, I have to set the power levels manually in the Pixel.
      Any help will be greatly appreciated, thank you
